Nice surprise

jacomo, 01.02.2018
Very beautiful violin. A finish worthy of Americans. The guitar comes with a beefy gigbag and well padded. The neck is great, it has a great ease of play. For microphones they may be a bit messy but for having other guitars in the same price range I would say they are doing pretty well. A lot of guitarists made an upgrade on this guitar, for my part I may be considering changing the keys for self-locking. In short for me it's a great deal and I'm having fun with.

Perfectly processed guitar with good sound

H.P., 08.08.2018
This guitar is the 2017 model of the PRS SE Custom 22 with ebony instead of rosewood fretboard. In contrast to the current 2018 model, there is no option to split the two humbuckers and operate as single coils, and the switch to switch the pickups sits elsewhere and looks different.

When asked "this or the current model?" So you have to consider: do I need a rosewood fingerboard and the coil split function, or do I want to save 250 euros compared to the current model? De facto, because a Gigbag is included, you get a regular Korean SE at the price of an Indonesian standard SE.

My guitar is perfect, no mistakes in the wood, everything is processed neatly, even the bird inlays are more beautiful than with an Indonesian standard SE. Only the connector has a tendency to loosen and must be tightened from time to time. Like all SEs in this price range, the guitar comes from Korea's World Musical Instrument Co. and has been tested and adjusted by PRS Europe (test certificate included). Mine had a very good setup, maybe a bit too deep for my taste, but professionals will like it that way. Ex factory the guitar is covered with D'Addario 09 ... 42. Plays very smoothly.

The tremolo bridge is fairly stable with its four factory-fitted springs. Since I've installed the enclosed 5th spring, it is extremely voice-stable and needs quite a bit to get rid of the mood.

Sonically, the 85/15 "S" pickups (the same as in the current model) are an interesting mix of round yet snappy, with the Custom 22 basically a bit less snappy than a Custom 24, with the 22 missing Frets were used to place the neck pickup a good 1cm further up, which produces a slightly different timbre. I like the sound. Strat replacement is definitely not one - who likes the sound of single coils, the part should absolutely try it, because that sounds very different, and as I said, the humbucker can not be split in this model.

The "Whale Blue" finish is beautiful and in reality a bit darker than in the photos. Since the headstock is black, the ebony fingerboard looks cooler in my opinion than a rosewood fingerboard. And since ebony is not covered by the CITES agreement, traveling and reselling this guitar is also less problematic.

Conclusion: A great guitar at a tempting price.
